Specialized's S-Works Tarmac SL4 carries its winning pedigree everywhere it goes, from the mountains to the flats. This thoroughbred boasts a FACT 11r carbon frame and fork that are super light to float up climbs, and exceptionally stiff to handle high-wattage accelerations. Aiding in your quest to hit max velocity are lightweight Roval wheels and a phenomenal SRAM Red 22 drivetrain and wide range cassette to get you up lung-searing climbs, while the incredible hydraulic rim brakes keep your speed in check down will-testing descents. And, from training sessions to race day, you'll be glad the Tarmac is topped off with Specialized's world-class components. Even the Body Geometry saddle has carbon fiber rails to keep the weight down.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
This frame’s head tube and fork are 1 3/8 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems without adding weight.
